LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - A multi-agency investigation has led to the raid of nearly a dozen homes and businesses in Lubbock, Brownfield and Meadow.
Agents from the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration worked with Brownfield Police, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office to serve narcotics warrants on Thursday.
The Brownfield News reports a residence in the 1100 block of E. Harris and Wholesale Tire Co. at 1st Street and Main were searched. The report says authorities also searched a location in Meadow.
According to the Brownfield News, at least one person was seen being taken into custody.
A source tells KCBD six locations were raided in Lubbock, including a couple of businesses.
Brownfield Police Chief Tony Serbantez confirmed the information, and says this is a joint operation involving multiple agencies. He also says Lubbock County is involved, but could not give any other details at this time.
